“[The Youth Leader Collective] has enabled me to make relationships within my area with other local Student Pastors. These relationships are crucial to me as I am able to lean on and learn from these other Student Pastors that are going through the same journey I am. Sure, every church is different with its own specific problems, but we are ONE body. [YLCo.] and the North Georgia Area Network that I am part of, makes it feel like we are ONE body more than any other area I have served in. I have an incredible respect for [YLCo.] and what they do.”
